    New site finished saturday night. Rollout it. Good response, nice traffic right off.

    It is not the greatest site but does some unique stuff, I wrote alot of copy. Happy enough with it.

    Wake up this morning. Check my stats.
    WebCopier v3.2 646.88 KB

    I have a bunch of unique phrasing I will watch for, but come on. 1 day? Are they just sitting out there scanning for sites to copy? Almost makes me suspect of some of the merchants (the site is primarily based on very small indies).

    The CJ bot did visit, and is scooter really the browser for the palm? Because my site has to be dog ugly on the palm. Freaks.

    Sites stealers give us fellow lazy people a bad name.

    Wow!!! One day and it was copied (or stored for analysis) - this is amazing.
    I hope you can catch them just as fast!

    Thanks redfish.
    Altavista?? Brings up some distant past memories. I can't remember the last time altavista sent me any real traffic, nice to see they stopped by, google stopped by as well.

    Must be something to do with Saturday night!

    I put up a redesigned site Saturday evening (UK time), and a little over an hour later I had around 250 hits within a few minutes - all from the same IP.

    I'm really not sure what you can do though, at least not until the copied site starts showing up in the search engines.

    The reason this is making me more pissy than usual, i had an entire site ripped this past week. Got it shutdown, kicked by the merchant, but argh!!! At least give me a few weeks as being the only one with my content.

    These are the people that made WebCopier.

    Oh, look, they have an affiliate program.

    If you click on their links What Can WebCopier do for you? "This section will be available soon".

    Some investigation is worth downloading this guy and seeing if there is a way to ban it??? I hope you've recorded his IP from the log?

    www.ip2location.com is a good site with a demo for finding where the IP is.
